    2019-2022 Re-connecting Thunderbolt Country

    Title: Reconnecting Thunderbolt Country for threatened New England woodland and wetland biodiversity

    Funds: $99,996

    Source: NSW Environmental Trust

    This project will help restore habitat connectivity for threatened fauna and flora in Thunderbolt Country around Uralla, Kentucky and Salisbury Plains on southern New England Tablelands. A lack of viable habitat and poor condition of existing vegetation is jeopardising the survival and impeding movement of 19 key threatened fauna and 7 key threatened plant species.

    Landholders will plant 36 ha of new habitat with 12,000 native trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Remnant native woodland and wetland (18 ha) will be protected. Monitoring and education will improve landholder capacity to build knowledge and better manage threats.

    The project begins in October 2019 and runs until May 2022.

    As in previous years there was strong competition for funds, with a diverse range of projects proposed. The Trust received 83 applications to this program requesting funding of $7,270,347, and following a rigorous assessment process, approved 44 grants with a total value of $3,834,730.
